A recent heated and expletive-laden confrontation between a University of Connecticut professor and two on-campus preachers has drawn the ire of conservative media.
Over the course of a two-hour tirade, professor of anthropology James Boster angrily lashed out at evangelist Don Karns of Hampton, Virginia, who was holding a sign opposing evolution, on the University of Connecticut campus last month.
"Have you read Origin of Species? I have read the Old Testament and the New Testament. I can quote you Scripture," yelled Boster, who frequently dismissed any rebuttal by Karns as "That's bulls---." more >>
Responding to Pat Robertson's comments that Young Earth Creationists are "deaf, dumb and blind," Ken Ham of the Creation Museum accused the CBN host of compromising Scripture and thus serving as "one of the biggest problems we have today in the church."
"Pat Robertson illustrates one of the biggest problems we have today in the church-people like Robertson compromise the Word of God with the pagan ideas of fallible men!" Ham posted on his Facebook page on Tuesday.
"That's why a big part of the AiG ministry is to call the church and culture back to the authority of the Word. Pat Robertson is not upholding the Word of God with his ridiculous statements -- he is undermining the authority of the Word." more >>
Creation Museum CEO and President Ken Ham and "The Science Guy" Bill Nye continued butting heads on the topic of creationism nearly three months after their debate in February, with Ham criticizing Nye for speaking with a "mocking tone" about him in a recent talk show interview.
"Bill Nye 'the Science Guy' speaks in a mocking tone about me on the NBC TV's 'Late Night with Seth Myers,'" Ham wrote in a Facebook post on Thursday, referring to Nye's appearance on the show earlier this week.
"Also, he again makes the same old false accusation that if generations of children are taught creation, it will undermine science – in fact, he tries to make a ridiculous connection between the internet, computers, facebooking, tweeting, etc. and not believing in creation," he added. more >>

While more than half of Americans are skeptical of the Big Bang theory, only a quarter question that there is a creator, according to an Associated Press poll.
The poll also found that a sizable minority question evolution, global warming and whether the earth is billions of years old.
The AP poll asked participants to rate their confidence on several statements relating to medicine and science. Fifty-one percent of surveyed Americans said they are "not too/not at all confident" that "the universe began 13.8 billion years ago with a big bang." Only 25 percent expressed skepticism that "the universe is so complex, there must be a supreme being guiding its creation." more >>
Creation Museum CEO and President Ken Ham says Bill Nye has been painting an inaccurate picture of Ham and those who believe in the literal interpretation of the Genesis creation account. Ham insisted that he is not the leader of a cultic fringe group, as Nye seems to suggest.
"I believe he (Nye) is trying to portray me as some sort of tyrannical leader of the AiG (Answers in Genesis) staff and supporters, who follow me as people might do with some sort of cult leader," Ham wrote on Wednesday. "Why does he continue to say this? I believe he is trying to get the public to believe that AiG is some sort of cultic fringe group! It's all a part of trying to marginalize Bible-believing Christians in the culture, of which there are tens of millions of people in the USA alone."
Ham said that during the much publicized February debate at the Creation Museum, where the two debated creationism, Nye had repeatedly used phrases like "Ken Ham's creation model," "Ken Ham's flood," and "Ken Ham and his followers." more >>
